Dozens of Nigerians freed from church awaiting ‘Second Coming’ in Ondo – By Ishaq Khalid & Robert Plummer (BBC News) / July 2, 2022
Police in Nigeria have rescued 77 people, including children, from a church where they were confined in the south-western state of Ondo.
Some of them are believed to have been there for months.
A police spokesperson said many of them had been told to expect the Second Coming of Jesus Christ in April and had abandoned school to witness the event.
The raid came after a mother complained her children were missing and she thought they were in the church.
